Hi @davidc128

 

You may want to try RaceRender.

 

There is also a user-shared solution you may check. See @kajuna 's article at https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Telemetry-GPS-overlays/GoPro-GPS-not-working-Performance-sticke... .

 

Thanks!

Dashware does not support the newest GPS data format of GoPros. You can extract your data to GPX with the Telemetry Extractor ( https://goprotelemetryextractor.com/free ) and import the data that way. You could also modify your Hero8 files to make them compatible with previous software by using the GPS Quik Fix app and adding the Hero6 xml profile to dahsware. Some useful links here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Telemetry-GPS-overlays/GoPro-Telemetry-Resources-software/gpm-p...

I was told by an admin yesterday regarding this on a different thread to use either dashware or racerender!

So Dashware doesn't work either?

Funny, but if you go on to the dashware website, they say they're working with GoPro on an exciting new project....

I think that post is from the Hero5 times, which is the latest GoPro camera Dashware supports natively. You can make it support up to the 7 by adding the XML profiles from Quik, but then the data format changed in the Hero8/Max, so you either need to convert the video files to the previous format with the GPS Quick Fix or extract the data to GPX and import it that way.

Got it to work by extracting GPX File.  Thanks for your help
